Is your VOD working yet?

    Same here, not sure what the hangup is, you would think they would notice 1 of my 3 boxes that are networked

    Phone line is always connected, network has been up for a couple weeks or so, particpated in the last three CEs, VOD is enabled. I don't know why I didn't get it, but I'm really bummed. :(

    Is there any hope left for those of us with 190, VOD enabled, but no engineering charge yet? I just got my HR20-700 a couple of weeks ago and networked it right away, but yet maybe I was too late in the game.

    There's so few of us (less than the 29 showing cause some have had it turned on since) I have my doubts...

    Is there anyone we can contact to initiate the engineering charge?
    It's pretty obvious that we somehow got missed or forgotten.
    It appears that if we could get the engineers to go into our accounts, we would then get to leave the orphanage.
    And if there are, in fact only around 29 of us left, it shouldn't be that big of a project.

    I don't have it either but it's probably time to just get over it. Remember the purpose of the CE program - it's NOT to give us the new toy first. It's for them to get stuff in the hands of testers. In the grand scheme of things < 29 more testers isn't going to mean much. Does it suck - yes, but that's life. Left move on and get to working on the new CE this weekend.

    Don't give up. I just enabled VOD earlier today. Tried 2 restarts, nothing. Went Salmon fishing. Just got back and channel 1000 is there. I'm going to wait until after tonights CE before downloading.

    Right now, there are around 29 of us who didn't get the engineering format. That's about 2% of the CE folks who got the last version.
    When this goes national, a 2% failure rate will amount to a whole heck of a lot of unhappy people. Shouldn't D* look into WHY we 29 did not get the upgrade and from there figure out a solution. AFAIK, this is also part of the CE program. If they can find a nexus with our accounts, maybe they can avoid the same problem when it goes national.

    I could be wrong here but I believe there is an additional check in place (the engeneering line on your account) do determine what accounts get VOD right now and that check will presumably not be there when it goes national.

    I have the engineering charge on my account but missed the last CE due to being out of town. I am out as well. Either way we will have to wait. However, if those that downloaded and enabled VOD but don't have the engineering charge are able to get DirecTV to add it then DirecTV should allow those that have the engineering charge but missed last weeks download to be able to enable VOD. It is only fair. Wait, they world is not fair and neither is this. Oh well, that's life.

    Alas the method of entitlement for VOD is completely different than what will be used by customers. So this isn't really part of the CE, even though it greatly affect the CE'ers.

    Cheers,

    Last ditch effort, change my avatar back to what it was in the movie.

    Still no engineering charge in account... :(

    I hate to say it Mark, but I'm glad someone with your background in the CE is still waiting... it gives me some hope that maybe we can still all get it turned on.

    Note from DIRECTV: "Oh, now we recognize you! Sorry for the delay." :D

    (Just kidding)

    Cheers,
